The availability of daylight on any plane of a building and the passive heat gain due to the corresponding incident solar radiation is correlated by daylight luminous efficacy. The present study was carried out to evaluate daylight efficacy on exterior horizontal plane for Kolkata using Perez Model an established analytical model and Indian measured solar radiation database. The analytical model was selected according to the sky conditions throughout the year. The estimated efficacy models were used to predic…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
